Endeavor Entrepreneur and Founder of Smart Medical Services, Amr El Tayeb, was recently selected as a Fellow by Ashoka Arab World for his pioneering work in providing access to low-cost, self-managed, personalized healthcare programs to Egyptians.
Established in 2009, Smart Medical Services is a provider of innovative healthcare and insurance programs. The company’s main focus is to cover the full ‘supply chain’ of the healthcare industry through enabling individuals and organizations to get tailored medical programs and access to easy streamlined automated processes leading to lowering the costs of these services and including more people in the healthcare ecosystem through its intelligent automated online platform.
One of the main projects of Smart Medical Services is the Sehaty Card, a program that provides personalized healthcare solutions for all family members particularly those who are not insured or those who lack access to healthcare services in general. Through Sehaty, Smart Medical Services provides medical guidance, online support, reliable network of doctors and service providers, discounts on all medical services including medications, and services uncovered by any medical insurance schemes, follow-ups, medical records, and chronic diseases management. By providing this end-to-end solution Sehaty results in high efficiency of health management, reducing medical financial costs for an already burdened segment.
Selected as an Endeavor Entrepreneur in 2013, this recent Fellowship award from Ashoka, is further testament to Amr El-Tayeb’s impact-driven pursuits through scaling-up Smart Medical Services.
